The signs are everywhere.

A wave of hometown pride is sweeping through Westport as the local Little League team stays alive in its quest for the Little League World Series title in Williamsport, Pa.

Boosterism for the team hit fever pitch Saturday after the local boys of summer scored a spectacular come-from-behind victory, 14-13, Friday afternoon over Washington -- after trailing by 8 runs at one point -- to advance to the U.S. championship against California.

Here's a photo gallery of some of the "signs" of support for the team, who will be welcomed home Monday -- regardless of the tournament outcome -- to a heroes' welcome Monday with a 5 p.m. parade down Main Street preceding a Jesup Green celebration.
